stay on taxes -- >> romney: right. >> what is the difference? >> romney: virtually everything he said about my tax plan was inaccurate. i'm not looking for a $5 trillion tax cut. what i said is i won't put in place a tax cut that adds to the deficit. that's part one. no economist can say mitt romney's plan adds $5 trillion when i say i will not add to the tax plan. number two i got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true, but just keep repeating it and ultimately hoping i will believe it. but that is not the case. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high-income americans. and number 3, i will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle income families. i will lower the tax on middle income families. i saw a study that came out today that said that you are going to raise taxes by 3 to $4,000 on middle income families. throw all of these studies out there. but let's get to the bottom line. i want to bring the rates down at the same time lower deductions and exd exemptions and small business pace that individual rate. 54% of america

is the difference -- romney: but i -- right, right. >> moderator: let's just stay on taxes for a moment. romney: virtually everything he said about hi many tax plan is inaccurate. if i was asked to support it, i'd say absolutely not. i'm not looking for a $5 trillion tax cut. what identify said is i won't put in place a tax cut that adds to the deficit. that's part one. so there's no economist can say mitt romney's tax plan adds $5 trillion if i say i will not add to the deficit with my tax plan. number two, i will not reduce the share paid by high-income individuals. i know you and your running mate keep saying that, but it's just not the case. look, i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. [laughter] that is not the case. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high-income americans. and number three, i will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle income families. i will lower taxes on middle income families. now, you cite a study. there's six other studies that looked at the study

a clear indication of where they differ. i think you're right, certainly i think that plitt romney will be very claesed with the night. you look at the twitter verse, some democrats think the president seemed a little listless here. certainly when you think about it, mitt romney needed to come in here and make an impression. we'll see in the days ahead whether he did. but certainly i can assure you in the spin room right now, republicans are making the case that he did, in fact, make that impression. anderson. >> no doubt about that. reaction already pouring in. and we'll be taking the temperature of a lot of different groups over the next hour and a half. we have our analyst and reporters and cnn contributors. a quick reading right now. john king, david gergen. >> look at e-mails, conversations during the debate. twitterverse, republicans very happy, including the top team around mitt romney. liberals complaining about the president's performance. without a doubt, participating in republican primary debates helped mitt romney, the president was rusty. hasn't done this in four year
